I never put my purse on top of the car roof for very obvious reasons.
Well, the other day, I did.
And, the inevitable happened - I drove off with my purse still on top of the car. Never to be seen again.
I think I was so distracted with the thought of taking our three new teenage chickens home while buckling the kids into their seats, after stopping to buy the appropriate chook food....
I believe I'm not alone in my act of foolishness. Most of the lovely customer service people I spoke to, re replacement cards, shared similar stories.
The hunt is now on for a new purse. I loved my purse, it suited me perfectly.
I have tried several handbag and department stores, but nothing has grabbed my attention. My son, nearly 4yrs old, suggested fuscia pink. My daughter, turning 6, found a cobalt blue wallet with large swinging tassels. Not quite what I had in mind.
I'll keep looking...
Yesterday I received a letter from the Police. Someone had handed in my purse!
Thank you kind person.
It's a little battered, but all my things were still there.
Ah, to have my purse back is a very comforting feeling.
